Science Based Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy

Medical professionals can help clients “find peace” through the use of psychedelic-assisted therapy. 

We are currently looking at options for building an overnight retreat center in Washington in anticipation of future legalization.

Why
Psychedelics
Work

Are you stuck?

Psychedelics can create a new awareness and the ability to view “problems” from a new perspective.

Why Ayra

The Hindu meaning of Ayra is “breath of life,” while in Urdu it means “astonishing.” In Arabic, Ayra refers to “something of which there is so much that it cannot be summed up by the eyes.”

For Practitioners

Chances are, you’ve been talking to a client about the same issue for five years. Talk therapy alone isn’t working.

Your client needs a breakthrough.

We can help.

We believe a patient’s current therapist is best positioned to guide pre- and post-psychedelic therapy integration. 

Therapists are welcome to join their clients at our retreats.

Certified. Experienced. Safe.
